Greetings Brothers


Thank you American Legion Family for you efforts in employment Homeless and education initiatives.

It is a privilege for me to be on the Department Committee and to represent the SAL Department pf NJ there. This year we topped the $2,000,000 Mark for the past 5 years in Donations to our homeless Veterans. At this Years National Convention the VEH&E committee from the Department of NJ will be awarded for the 3rd time The National VEH&E Award.


One of our biggest accomplishments is the Departments of NJ Atlantic City Regional Standdown. No other American Legion in the country does this. This year it occurs on Wed May 22 starting at 0830. If you can help, go to Post 61 in the All Wars Memorial Building Atlantic City. A short training session that morning and you can have a very rewarding experience with needy Veterans that day.


We are also bringing the GI Bill Exhibit to the Wildwood Convention. On Thursday there will be a reception with speakers outlining the GI Bill with light refreshments. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.


Hope to see you in Atlantic City and Wildwood


For God and Country
